New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton underwent successful surgery this morning to repair his left tibial plateau fracture and lateral meniscal tear. The procedure reportedly lasted three hours.

Payton broke his knee and tibia and tore his MCL when tight end Jimmy Graham collided with him on the sidelines early in yesterday's loss at Tampa Bay.

Sean Payton will remain in a New Orleans hospital overnight. The recovery and rehab period for an injury of this nature can last anywhere between three to six months.
